Learning Expectations

As a Catholic school in the Portland, Oregon metro area, it is our belief that there must be an integration of our faith in our total school curriculum. Our Schoolwide Learning Expectations will aid us as we continue to provide an atmosphere where the Gospel values are instilled, Christian attitudes are developed, academic excellence is fostered, and discipline is stressed.

Mission

St. John the Baptist Catholic School is a family oriented faith community which is committed to fostering the spiritual, academic, physical, social, and moral abilities of our private school students who then actively demonstrate their learning in service to others.

SJB Catholic School Testimonials

A nurturing environment is what stands out to me about St. John the Baptist. In 2008, when I took my first teaching job at SJB, I found a welcoming and supportive community. Parents donated supplies and gave both encouragement and time, even coming in to wash desks when I was overwhelmed. Colleagues not only sheltered and mentored me, but also challenged me to grow. Even though I am not Catholic, families and staff opened their arms and hearts to teach and include me in the Catholic faith traditions that are the heart of this school and parish. I never felt like an outsider, but a valued partner and companion in building a faith community. The school has changed through the years, but the thing that remains constant is a loving community of leaders, teachers, families and parishioners. I’m thankful to be part of this SJB family whose commitment to faith, Christian service and learning provides the foundation for our school.

St. John the Baptist Catholic School has become much more than just a school in the ten years our kids have been enrolled there. As a mother of three kids who all have attended SJB since preschool, I am constantly amazed with the level of academic excellence they provide my children as well as the small nurturing community St John’s has included us all in. When Covid-19 closed schools last spring, SJB did not miss a beat. The teachers and staff moved digital the next day and had full day assignments for my children. While this year has looked different than any other academic school year, SJB has provided an in-class and digital hybrid setting to allow my kids to not only learn but to thrive in an exceptionally challenging time. I would recommend our wonderful school to anyone who wants their child to flourish in a small class environment that will help them to become successful in life.

I feel blessed to have my three kids at St. John the Baptist Catholic School this school year.  The staff and students really made us feel welcomed and loved from our first day.  The teachers are doing an amazing job academically challenging our kids while helping them reach their full potential.  Their love and support is reflected onto all the children at SJB.  Thank you SJB!
